Liverpool have agreed a £35million deal with Arsenal for Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain.
The ECHO understands that the England international will undergo a medical at St George’s Park on Wednesday evening.
If everything goes to plan then Oxlade-Chamberlain will pen his contract before flying out to Malta with Gareth Southgate’s squad on Thursday ahead of the World Cup qualifier against Malta on Friday night.
Negotiations with the Gunners were swiftly completed this afternoon after the Reds agreed to match Chelsea’s offer.
Arsenal told Liverpool earlier this summer that they weren’t willing to sell them the 24-year-old, but after he rejected the chance to sign for Chelsea earlier this week they had a change of heart.
Rather than risk losing Oxlade-Chamberlain for nothing next summer, they agreed to do business with the Reds.
